HOLOCAUST IN THE CLASSROOM
Indiana high schools would have to teach about the Holocaust under a bill proposed in the House of Representatives.
Rep. Clyde Kersey, D-Terre Haute, is backing the proposal for the second straight year. The bill failed to receive a hearing last session, but Kersey is hopeful the House Education Committee will take it up in 2006.
Kersey said the bill was inspired by Eva Kor, a Holocaust survivor who runs the CANDLES Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute. more.
